Microsoft says no upgrade price for Office 2010

06 January 2010

Microsoft has said it has no plans to offer separate upgrade editions for its Office 2010 that is scheduled to debut in June, Computer World magazine has reported. The move will effectively raise the price for many users who want to migrate from older editions of the popular suite. Microsoft has traditionally sold upgrades at prices significantly less than the full editions. A spokeswoman for the software giant said the company would offer a promotion at some point before the new version's release that will give buyers of Office 2007 a free or heavily-discounted copy of the new Office 2010 when it launches.
